Aronofsky Not Directing a Lost Episode


In October, it was announced that Darren Aronofsky, director of Requiem for a Dream and upcoming The Fountain, had signed on to direct an episode of ABC's Lost, which would have likely aired at the beginning of May sweeps.

The magazine now says that Aronofsky has respectfully bowed out of helming one of the current season's remaining episodes due to scheduling conflicts. "The timing didn't work out," Aronofsky says. "I'm expecting a child" (with Oscar nominee Rachel Weisz.)

The director is also prepping a new movie called Flicker, an adaptation of the cult novel.
